Our Albuquerque business attorneys can help whether you need a lease, a sale agreement, a purchase agreement, a prenuptial agreement, a security agreement, or just about any other type of agreement you need with all required accompanying documents (promissory notes, UCC financing statements, personal guarantees). We know the importance of having a proper contract when doing business.
While it is still possible to do business on a handshake, we do not recommend it. In almost every situation, writing up a contract between two parties highlights some ambiguities to what the parties thought the deal entailed; this fact makes having a written contract more important because it forces the parties to resolve many of those ambiguities, but it also makes the contract more likely to be enforceable.
